Abstract: Technology develops rapidly and this continually leads to raising new ethical problems that did not previously exist. Technology, like medicine, sometimes causes negative side effects. One of these emerging technologies is near field communication (NFC). This technology enables mobile devices to exchange data in a short range. This paper presents literature on NFC and justifies that the ethical issues associated with using it were not previously discussed. This makes it an interesting area of research that needs to be addressed. Therefore, this paper will discuss, based on the foundation of ethical theories, the ethical concerns that arise as a result of using this emerging technology for mobile payments. Then, it proposes a set of proactive actions that can be taken to address these concerns. A direction for future research is also provided to empirically test the concepts that have been highlighted in this paper.
